[From tomorrow night’s reader – a few words about the inspiration behind the readings]
Halloween is coming up, and there is an atmosphere of festivity here in JP. Two weekends ago, my family and I saw the lantern parade at Jamaica Pond. Kids were out wearing their costumes, and families were walking around the pond with homemade lanterns made of candlesticks in 2-liter bottles cut in half. It was a lot of fun and a time of beautiful fellowship.
But there is more happening around Halloween. This is a time of worship for many people, who worship the spirit of the woods, trees, or earth. Others at this time of year try Ouija boards, seek out fortune tellers, or try to use magic in order to feel inspired, or to connect with something bigger.
This can be a good time to recognize that connecting to God, who is right here with us, brings permanent joy and peace. God is all we need! Divine Mind rightly tells us all we need to know for now and the future, and we can be conscious of the one all-encompassing Spirit that includes all identities.
Church also provides a time for beautiful fellowship for all of us as part of the one Spirit. Everyone is so welcome to join in for this meeting – in person, or on the phone.
